Faculty have access to thousands of educational and documentary videos from Infobase’s Films on Demand. This is a fantastic resource on campus and you can learn more about it on the Carlyle Campbell Library website.
This post focuses specifically on how to easily use this resource in Brightspace. It is possible share with a link to a video but with just a few clicks you can add these videos directly into your Brightspace content.
Where can I embed videos?
The embed method uses the Insert stuff button from the HTML text editor. So videos can be embedded anywhere you see the text editor: Content area, Discussions, Assignments, etc.
Start with any HTML text editor.
*For adding to the Content area, you will want to choose Upload/Create then Create a File to open a new HTML editor.
Click the Insert Stuff buton.
On the popup window, scroll down and click Films on Demand.
Search for videos by typing in the search bar and press Enter.
Use the filter options to refine your search as needed.
To embed a video, click the Embed button to the right of the video. An option menu will dropdown to let you choose an embed size.
Click Insert on the video preview page.
The video has now been embedded into the text editor and you can add text and save as usual.
